Each mathematician has a certain perspective on mathematics. Some believe that math is the language of science. Galileo (1564–1642) wrote that “Philosophy is written in this grand book, the universe . . ” Other mathematicians view math as a formal game played with symbols. Others believe that math is a search for truth and beauty. And there are numerous other philosophies of mathematics. Though we may have different grand views on the meaning of mathematics, there are common traits among mathematicians.

Every year student presentations are made at the annual Joint Mathematics Meetings of the American Mathematical Society (AMS) and the Mathematical Association of America (MAA). Find out what these presentations were at the most recent of these meetings. Describe the work that you find most interesting and explain why you find this work compelling. 4.

Mathematicians have internalized a “mathematical mode of thinking,” in which they look at examples, observe patterns, make conjectures, and try to prove them. The top job in The Wall Street Journal ’s 2009 careers survey was Mathematician. The second job on the list was Actuary, another job commonly held by professional mathematicians. It appears that professional mathematics employment yields a high rate of job satisfaction. Generally speaking, mathematicians work in comfortable office environments, with access to computing facilities, libraries, and communication facilities (such as the Internet).
